Controversy aside, the World Press Photo Awards gave us an incredible collection of images from photojournalists around the globe. What you see above is an infographic that breaks down the details of what cameras were used to take the winning shots for this year’s contest.
Created by Quesabesde, the infographic was made using EXIF data from the winning photographs in each category. While most of the results follow the trends of previous years, there are a few anomalies in the data.
As tends to be the case almost every year, Canon came out above everyone else, with 28 of the 45 winning photographs being captured on Canon DSLRs. Canon’s 5D Mark III took the top spot with 15 images, while the flagship 1D X came in with 6 winning photos. Nikon followed up Canon with 12 of the 45 winning photographs.
One of the more interesting data points is that a GoPro HERO4 Black was used to capture a winning photograph.
Not so surprisingly, DSLRs appear to still rule the roost when it comes to photojournalism. No fewer than 40 of the winning photos were captured using DSLRs.
Photographer Warren Richardson captured his Photo of the Year, pictured below, on a Canon 5D Mark II using a 24mm f/1.4 at ISO 6400.
